Uh, oh, yeah...there is a website now for my book "An Ode to Fashion". It's in English and German. I'm also planning an online shop for the future - so everyone can purchase the book and stuff. HAVE A LOOK AND STAY TUNED!
It was my dream since ever to publish a book about fashion. I've always been very fascinated by chef designers and their Haute Couture and Pret-à-Porter shows. Who could imagine a world without the Burberry trenchcoat or a Chanel 2.55 handbag? So I wanted to pay homage and I visualised the book "An Ode to Fashion". I wrote articles, took pictures at night and in the studio and also did the illustrations. Yes, it was a lot of work but it was absolutely worth it!
Here are some illustrations that I made for my fashion book "An Ode to Fashion" which I'll publish soon. I used different pencils and acrylic paint. Now I'm going to write some articles for the book and I need to design the layout. Stay tuned!
This here is the first book cover ever that I've created. I've always been much into (real) crime stories. It's one of the few things I watch on TV; or let's say on my notebook. I made some monoprints for it - they can only be made once, unlike most printmaking which allows for multiple originals. Afterwards, I digitised the prints and coloured them. The story for the book is still missing but I'm thinking about writing it.
People spend more and more money on clothing, it is produced in abundance, but unfortunately the resources are not increasing. In this infographic I would like to draw attention to the issue. The illustrations are drawn by hand with an oil pen and painted with acrylics. Afterwards I edited them. The headlines are made of nail polish.
Well, I thought it would be a nice look when mixing an old font (textura quadrata) and some written insults. I used different tempera colours and a nail varnish for these pieces of art. By the way, I'm a pretty friendly person, but it's okay to be angry sometimes...
